Hi

My starter just stopped working, making a weird sound, as if it were stuck. I did a small vid of it :


What is the problem with it ? Is it fixable ? It's a sportman 450 2006 model. Thanks.

If the starter itself is binding up you can try hitting it with a hammer as you turn it over.

the sound is the bendix not engageing flywheel teeth....could be two problems..bad bendix with screwed up teeth on it or not fully extending...or the bushing in the cover is gone not keeping the bendix aligned to the fly wheel...

just hope its not the flywheel...with chipped teeth...

I can start it by hand if it can provide tip on diagnosis, I should have stated it in the begining. I was always needing to give some gas to start it up, maybe that it damaged something in the long run too.

I'll try to open this up slowly to see if I can see something wrong.
